Free Savannah Music Festival Jazz Academy program offered virtually for kids

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Meet the SMF Jazz Academy’s 2020-21 Artist Instructors

If you have a child enrolled in Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools who plays a musical instrument or is interested in learning to play a musical instrument, please check out the free Savannah Musical Festival’s virtual Jazz Academy.

Registration is open now for the Fall 2020 semester of SMF Jazz Academy. Enroll online here. 

Open to all students in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System. Open to all music levels.

This a flexible program that’s able to adapt to student’s needs and give them the skills to grow their creativity. It’s being offered virtually for fall 2020 and already serving students in jazz music education.

Here’s what’s included for each student FOR FREE:

Depending on musical level, students are provided the following:
1) 2 days a week (either Mon and Tues or Wed and Thurs) of Jazz Music Classes (online)
2) Private instrument lessons with one of SMF Jazz Academy Artist Instructors (pictured above)
3) If your student needs an instrument or practice materials, SMF Academy has some for them that they can rent for FREE.

My 6th-grade daughter is enrolled and has already had a few of the sessions. She had her first private lesson today and loved it. She’s been taking saxophone for a year now and is a beginner. I’ve never seen her so spirited about her instrument until after today’s lesson. SMF Jazz Academy has been a welcome bright spot in my daughter’s distance learning during this complicated season of virtual education.

SMF Jazz Academy is currently accepting beginning, intermediate and advanced students. Previous musical experience is not required.

Enroll online here.
